This paper introduces Mycrocosm, a microblogging
site in which users communicate via statistical
graphics, rather than the usual short text statements.
Users of Mycrocosm can record everyday
“personal statistics” and share this information in
the form of simple graphs and charts. People have
used it to track how they got to work and how long it
took, what colour clothes they wore, how often they
checked their Facebook updates, how often a colleague
shows up late, and many other trends and
events. Mycrocosm raises awareness of the strong yet
subtle effect a medium has upon the messages it conveys.
Most computer based communication interfaces
are text based, so while the conduit is computational,
the medium is not far different from a typewriter.
Mycrocosm, by using easily updated statistical
graphs, creates an easy to use and understand medium
that nevertheless is quite different from other
forms of communication, both direct and computer

Welcome to Breathing Earth. This real-time simulation displays the CO2 emissions of every country in the world, as well as their birth and death rates.

Please note however that the CO2 emission levels shown here are much more likely to be too low than they are to be too high.
